Best Greek food in the world!!!!

If you want great Greek food, this is the place. The interior is nothing fancy, just a family style restaurant. But the food is wonderful. We were visiting Roanoke and ate here two nights in a row. Had different meals both nights and both meals were wonderful. If you go, have the stuffed grape... read more

Zorba's was forced to move from downtown due to Roanoke's foolish planners. I missed the fantastic Greek food. They have purchased Bobbi-Jo's and have combined both Greek and American food. As always very friendly and good service. The food is great. The place needs a little updating. The booth's are a little lumpy, but that would not stop me from... More

This restaurant is now known as Zorba's Small World Cafe. Had a gyro dinner (gyro meat, sauce, greek salad and pita quarters). Promptly served and very tasty. The waiter was also very friendly. Had bbaklava for dessert and it was just a little stale, but still good. Recommended.

Several years ago Zorba's from the Market Place in downtown Roanoke moved in with Bobbi-Jo's. Zorba's was always known in the valley as the best Greek food and amazing Gyro's. The restaurant is now called: Bobbi-Jo's Restaurant and Zorba's Small World Cafe. My nephew loves their Gyro's and I have fallen in love with their cheese steak hoagie. They are... More

Pancakes were great just as you would expect at a place with the word pancake in the name. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time even the place was very busy. We will definitely be going back.

"Zorba" has excellent food. Open for dinner only on Friday night; no beer/wine/mix. My wife loves the "Jamaican Joe's Chicken", I 'leave it to Zorba' to sample what he feels like fixing that week. Have not been disappointed in several visits - we go about every other week since discovering the place two months ago. Good friendly service, "Zorba" comes... More

Quite an interesting place whose owner, chief, and servers want to please. The men choose Jamaican Joe's Delight and I choose Moussaka. Food was very good and the chef came out and talked with us. There weren't too many customers although he told us the night before--a Friday--the place was completely filled. The outside is nondescript and one would thing... More
